Chinese Man Donates His Skin to Burned Daughter
BEIJING - A farmer whose child was severely burned in a fire had surgery to donate his skin without general anesthesia, as he could not afford the medical fees.
Du Jinhui, 31, volunteered to endure the pain after learning his 5-year-old daughter had suffered burns to 60 percent of her body in a blaze on Aug 16.
"He broke out in a sweat and screamed when I removed the skin," said Shi Longjie, the doctor who operated on Du at Hebei Friendship Hospital in Shijiazhuang, the provincial capital.
Even after this great sacrifice, she will never love her father half as much as he loves her. Children are the greatest waste of love. They are the earth, and the parent is the sun. The sun keeps giving/loving with no hope or expectation of a return.
